Consider the scene: You have finished your research report/MSc dissertation/PhD and your manager/supervisor/employer asks ‘have you published?’ What do you do? Where do you start? How do you condense many months and possibly years of work into one 3 000 word article fit for publication? Many will recognise this scenario as the ever increasing pressure (in academia and clinical practice) to publish in high impact quality journals grows. The problem is, however, that the publishing world is often shrouded in mystery and uncertainty. Additionally, little guidance for new researchers or clinicians on how they might write an article fit for publication, exists. Another problem is time, or lack of it. Lack of time is one of the most common reasons why those working in academia fail to publish. Although others have attempted to address writing and publication issues, Writing Your Journal Article in 12 weeks: A Guide to Academic Publishing Success offers a fresh approach. In her book, Belcher both demystifies the publication world and offers guidance on managing time.
